Can't see anything - that's the trouble with marks under glazes, especially in pictures.

The clarity of marks needs to improve. I am unable to clearly see what the markings are within the oval shapes. Sorry!

I do remember a year ago thinking that this bowl might have been from Abuja. The shape of the marks and the decoration look right but the complete glazing within the foot ring and the colour of the stoneware are not like the majority of Abuja pieces. I do think you're right though Paul especially as your parents were in Nigeria.
